Ex-Nottingham Forest defender Jamaal Lascelles endured a rotten afternoon as Newcastle were thumped 4-0 at home to Manchester City.

The Magpies were thrashed by the champions. They secured victory with a dominant display away from home.

Newcastle are without doubt facing relegation. The prospect is becoming real for Eddie Howe and as a result, some serious signings will be needed in January.

The Magpies are looking up at their rivals from inside the bottom three and their situation could grow perilous if things don’t change soon.

Former Forest man Lascelles is in dire need of a good performance or two.

In recent weeks fans have turned on him. It’s no surprise to see the fan base disgruntled with his showing once again.

Lascelles signed for Newcastle from the City Ground in 2014. He was loaned back to the Reds but has been a mainstay in the Magpies.

These days he is the captain and has made 202 appearances for the football club.

Lascelles is currently in the midst of his most testing period as a Newcastle player.

What have Newcastle fans said about former Forest man Lascelles?

Following the game, they’re not impressed.

Lascelles is unlikely to be on borrowed time given that he is the captain. As a result, this will likely go down as a bad day at the office for the player.

At Forest, Lascelles was often reliable and deemed an important player. He made 65 appearances for the club, scoring four goals during his City Ground days.

With all of that in mind, here is what the Newcastle fan base had to say regarding the performance of Lascelles.
